Vegan Cookie Dough

August 2, 2017

 

 

I first came across the idea for a vegan cookie dough on Facebook, in one of those Tasty videos. I was intrigued, so I tried it but didn't like the recipe. I did some soul searching on cookie dough, toyed around with the recipe a bit and I really like what I've come up with. It's cashew based and you can definitely taste the cashews but this is a much healthier alternative to the real stuff. Bonus: it's no bake and definitely will be a hit with kids (if you don't finish it first.) 

 

Makes about 2 cups

Ingredients:

2 cups raw unsalted cashews

4 cups boiling water 

2 tbsp. vanilla bean paste 

1 tbsp. agave (or your preferred sweetener)

4 tbsp. non-dairy butter 

toppings to your liking; I used rainbow sprinkles,  vegan chocolate chips & vanilla chips 

 

1. Soak cashews in boiling water for 2 hours.

2. Drain cashews and place in a food processor. Process until the cashews are completely broken down.

3. Add the remaining ingredients besides the toppings to the food processor and process until nice and smooth, about 3 minutes.

4. Transfer to a storage container and add your favorite toppings. Combine well. 

5. Refrigerate overnight. (The cookie dough will be warm at this point and won't taste very good.)  Eat and enjoy!
